Is it possible to live a married life without sexual desires?
For a very minute percentage of couples yes. There are some people to whom sex is not important. They view marriage as a pure spiritual relationship of the mind or souls. They see that sex is part of the connection with the body which they strongly feel is either cumbersome or unnecessary, wishing to disconnect from the pure physical realm of marriage.
Anything is possible!
However life is not just about what is "possible". It's also about pursuing one's dreams and living life to the fullest. No one wants to "settle".
One of the keys to having a long lasting and (happy) marriage is being with someone who shares your same values, wants the same things for the marriage, (naturally agrees) with you on how to obtain those things, and last but not least have a (mutual depth) of love and desire for one another.
There is no amount of communication or work that can overcome being with someone who does NOT want what you want.
It's not about "right" or "wrong". It's about "agree" or "disagree".
Couples who naturally agree with one another on the important things in life tend to be happier and stay together.
Like attracts like and opposites attract divorce attorneys. :-)
There is a place and space where the sex is part of the union. Yet not part of the marriage. When sexual desires arise it may or may not be part of the marriage but just fun carnal stuff. Sometimes sex happens when there is a marriage connection and that is wonderful. But a very small part of love within a marriage. It is well and good for us to think of them separately so if it works we can put them together, giving both respect and above all a lot of fun and love.
